Thanks for the report. That circumstance is a pathname consisting solely of

Awesome!  :-D

PS — Another pathological test case is, e.g.:

ls / /  ////    / //

The code has been like this since January, 2004. That's pretty dated.

For sure!  I guess I was just hoping somebody smarter than me [that's not

adding 'set word-break-chars [blah]' to your .inputrc ?"  «grin»

Thanks for the quick reply,
